hello all
I have two children, my daughter who is 4 and my son who is 3. I had my daughter at 32 weeks because of placenta abruption, from this we found out she has hypoxic brain damage and cerebral palsy which effects both legs and her arms (but mainly her left arm) we are so very lucky that she is so strong and determined but I think that is because of my son. He is amazing with her and they encourage each other all the time. 
At the moment we are having a lot of problems with my little girl with the way she sees herself and other children. She has to
wear splints use a Walker and a standing frame but all she wants is to be like her friends and it is just not possible. I have brought her amazing shoes (she picked out) but unfortunately nothing works. 
Sorry for the very long post
